Given that all I had to do was look outside to establish this fact...

I like the fact that they've consulted a forecaster to provide a detailed analysis of what is fairly normal weather for the location.
Perhaps they could explain to the residents of Cumbria what it's like next time it rains there.
You say that but it's easy to forget what snow looks like, especially in Scotland. Furthermore, each flake is different and a whole collection of different looking flakes could fool even the most ardent snow observers.
Yeah, but how do they know that every flake is different? Surely over the many millennia that there has been snow fall, there has been some repetition.
And do the Met Office have an official 'Snowflake Individuality Tester'?
I think these are issues that need answers.
Yeah, but how do they know that every flake is different?
This is what I've always wondered. It seems like one of those things that everyone takes for granted, like "We've got the best police/army/health service in the world". Really??
Every cornflake is different too, but no-one gives a shit about that.
Before turning the news on, me and the other half (I'm back with her) made a check-list to see who could predict the most annual snow news reports, eg random reporter in arse-end of anywhere in snow, pictures of snowploughsand/or stranded cars, kids on sledges, viewers pictures of snowmen, warning not to drive unless you really have to, and of course the number of breakdown service calls per hour based against usual..
Got a full house in 5 mins.
The talk of this being unexpectedly early threw me a bit though, they'd predicted it from around Tuesday, so exactly what was unexpected about it?
No snow here in duckville, unless about 1 mm overnight counts.
